Greg: All right, make sure you like, comment, subscribe. Also, check out our success stories. I’m going to provide a link below so you can see this hasn’t just worked for us, but it’s also worked for other people.
#1: Folic Acid
Greg: So, 10 nutrients that can help with depression. Number one is folic acid. All right, these are things like leafy greens, you’ve got citrus fruits, you’ve got beans, you’ve got rice.
Greg: Number two.
Matt: Potassium. Guys, we’re talking about bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes, spinach. Potassium’s going to be a really important one. This is one of those electrolytes we talked about in some of our other videos. Bananas are probably the easiest source you can get them in. Really going to be helpful.
Greg: Yeah. Number three is tryptophan. You’ve got things like eggs, turkey, cheese, and oats.
Matt: Guys, tryptophan is a big one. Tryptophan really helps with the production of serotonin. That’s that feel good chemical produced in the gut, really allows you the ability to even feel happy. So, tryptophan is a big one. Again, you’ll find it in some really simple foods, and it’s going to make a big difference.
Matt: Next, antioxidants. Guys, we’re looking at like red, blue berries. So, blueberries, strawberries, dark chocolate’s another really good source for antioxidants. Antioxidants, I want you guys to think about like you cut an apple open and you let it sit, it oxidizes, it turns brown. Antioxidants are things that help knock that stuff off of living organisms like yourself, your organs. Really helps with a lot of just the way your organs work and the way you feel.
Greg: Yeah, so number five is protein. You want to get a lot of your protein from lean meats, things like chicken, fish is a big one. You can also get it from things like eggs and lentils.
Matt: Magnesium, again, another electrolyte. This is going to be again really big for the production of serotonin, but magnesium’s also going to help you sleep, which is huge for just mental health and the way our brain works and dealing with things like depression or anxiety.
Matt: Magnesium, nuts, leafy greens like spinach or kale maybe, whole grains, any of those will be a good source.
#7: Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Greg: Yeah, cool. So, number seven is omega-3 fatty acids. You’ve got things like salmon, walnuts, and also brussel sprouts.
Matt: Serotonin, guys, a lot of this foods I mentioned earlier on or Greg mentioned earlier on in this list, it’s going to really just help with gut bacteria, making sure you have a good environment for serotonin to be produced and stored.
Matt: So, again, we’re looking at things like eggs, salmon, turkey, almonds are another good source, just going to be really helpful to make you feel better up here.
Greg: Yeah. Number nine is zinc. You’ve got things like dark chocolate, legumes, and then shellfish, which I hate. I hate fish. So, I’m not going to eat the shellfish, but dark chocolate I like, and also legumes are pretty good too.
#10: Vitamin D
Matt: Yeah. And then we’re going to wrap it up with vitamin D. So, this is a big one, not a lot of foods have it, but when you’re looking at eggs, milk, salmon, they’re all going to be great sources. And an added benefit for vitamin D is just good old sunshine-
Matt: That’s the best way to get it in my opinion.
Greg: I remember my mom always told me, “Make sure you go out and go out into the sun.”
Matt: That’s what it is.
Greg: It used to be like I work a lot from the computer, and I notice like on days like where I stay in like three days in a row, especially like summertime, I’m like oh my god, I don’t feel right.
Get Rid Of Seasonal Depression!
Matt: Seasonal depression same kind of thing.
Greg: Yeah, yep.
Matt: So, make sure you’re getting out in the sun. But, guys, make sure, rewind this, go through this list, pick a couple foods that might be appealing to you and go to the store, grab or start adding them into your diet on a regular basis, and just, you’ll feel over the next couple days, a major, major difference in the way that your mind’s working, the way that you’re sleeping, you’re going to go to bed tired, you’re going to wake up with more energy. You’re just going to feel better all around.
The Food & Nutrients You Eat Make A CRAZY Difference On Depression!
Greg: Yeah, it’s crazy, most people don’t realize how bad they’re eating. Just take like some of the things we listed here that are mentioned multiple times, a lot of these foods hit many of these nutrients, you know, things like salmon are great for you, things like almonds, things like eggs, anything like that, leafy green vegetables. All this type of stuff has most of this stuff in it, mix that little bit of fruits, which had the antioxidants, things like blueberries.
